Conway Shipley - Paço de Arcos, Portugal

Sacred to the Memory of CONWAY SHIPLY,
Late Captain of His Britannic Majesty’s Ship La Nymphe,
Who was killed in an attempt to cut an enemy’s vessel out of the Tagus,
On the 22d of April, 1808, aged 25 years.
Circumstances, which human wisdom could not foresee,
Nor any exertion of human courage obviate,
Rendered the attempt unsuccessful,
And closed the short but distinguished career of the gallant leader of it.
While his name will long live in the records of Fame,
And the remembrance of his country,
The brave and good of every nation will venerate his tomb,
And contemplate, with respect, the last mansion of a Hero.
